Proximity Detection and Warning system helps lower risk of collision in the workplace. With global competition putting pressure on companies to operate efficiently and keep their operating costs as low as possible, an incident, such as a collision, can potentially cost tens of thousands of dollars daily in downtime and possible workplace investigation. Despite the many recent initiatives to improve safety in the workplace, Collisions between machinery and workers are still occurring. Considering this potential cost to your organisation, lowering the risk of collision offers real savings to the bottom line. Though rear view mirrors, cameras and high visibility clothing are used to assist, drivers are often unaware of personnel or smaller vehicles in their blind spots. Some workplace environments have additional risk due to poor visibility caused by dust and poor or low lighting conditions. Orbit's BodyGuard system helps reduce the risk of collision by improving the driver's awareness of personnel or other objects in close proximity. The system does not hinder normal operations or distract the driver's attention unless an object is detected too close to the vehicle. In this event the driver receives an audible and visual warning giving an opportunity to take action and give the worker on the ground a second chance; at the same time avoiding a collision that could have been very costly.
